This Agreement is to be used as a guide for the purposes of Admission into the University of San Francisco
as a transfer student. The Office of Admission will award academic transfer credit as appropriate at the
time of admission. All students who wish to receive an undergraduate degree from USF must satisfy the
coursework included in the Core Curriculum. All transfer students are encouraged to contact the
Admissions Office for clarification of the University procedures and policies at (415) 422-6563. A student
need not fulfill all these classes before transferring, however these courses must be completed to graduate
from USF. A 3-UNIT SEMESTER OR 4-UNIT QUARTER COURSE WILL SATISFY THE
INDIVIDUAL CORE AREA REQUIREMENT. THE TOTAL CORE REQUIREMENT OF 44-UNITS
MUST BE MET IN ORDER TO GRADUATE FROM USF, WHICH MEANS ADDITIONAL COURSES

community college at which the credit was earned will transfer to USF with the exception of remedial math
and English. (i.e. No English below College Composition or its equivalent, no math below College Algebra
will transfer.) Such designation must be applicable at the time the work was completed.
